Washington, D.C. – Today, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after House Democrats released a bill stripping all hard-working Americans of their health care freedom:
“Congress can’t even keep its doors open, now Democrats want to put Washington in absolute control of your personal health care?
“When Americans see Democrats’ true, frightening government takeover of health care – banning good health care plans at work, jeopardizing Medicare for seniors, and doubling everyone’s taxes – voters will reject it.
“Republicans stand committed to working together to improve the broken status quo and lower health care costs for families and small businesses. But centralizing control in D.C. and continuing to limit access and choice for patients is an awfully bad starting point for Democrats.”
